You've MET Scheper-Hughes?

I'm in awe, she's one of my idols.

Death Without Weeping was an emotionally weighty read for me the very first time, and that was true the second time too.

Anthropology writing in general makes me super happy. So far, the ethnographic re-telling has been the best way I've found to understand a people in a place without going there.

Apropos, of nothing, New York City wasn't much of a surprise to me in any way, because I'd read so much about it for so many years.
